forced, aggressive and challenger in mitt romney. we are gong to get to more and more of the debate tape shortly but we take you to the day after on the campaign trail. first, the president about two and a half nours ago in iowa. >> governor romney has been running around talking about his five-point plan for the economy. here's a tip. usually when a politician tells you he's going to wait until after the election to explain a plan to you they don't have a pleasant surprise in store for you. >> now mitt romney in virginia about 90 minutes ago. >> i love these debates. you know? these things are great. i think it's interesting that the president still doesn't have an agenda for a second term. don't you think that it's time for him to finally put together a vision of what he'd do in the next four years if he were elected? >> as i said, for the next hour, we'll review last night and look at how we move forward to monday's final debate in florida which is on foreign policy. and speaking of foreign affairs, near the end of the long island cage match last night that libya came up and the
>> no question about it. mitt romney is the clear winner of last night's debate, even i'm co conceding the obama loss. we all agree on this. the real question on moving forward is weather romney's win will change the race. we've seen mondale outperform president raleigh in 1984 and with john kerry defeated bush. neither kerry or mondale translated that into an election night win, although steve kornacki likes to think about a potential mondale president history. as the dust settles, they're back on the trail today. obama is en route to a rally in wisconsin, but earlier today in denver supporters saw the obama we hoped to see last night. >> when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. he said that he doesn't even know that there's such laws that encourage outsourcing, never heard of them. he said if it's true, he must need a new accountant. we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney, because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time
. >> sure. >> do not miss the openings that obama missed going after the missing details of romney's plans, the context he didn't want to talk about the plans and seen paul ryan think of the issue of how to pay for the tax cut plan. paul ryan's been asked the time a few times and interviews on fox and you would think of as friendly territory. he said i don't know. he said i don't have enough time to get in to the numbers on this. i totally expect biden to come after ryan on that aggressively. i think the thought is, though, republicans had a long time. the ryan campaign and romney campaign knows this is coming and looking at romney's performance, it was glib, superficially appealing. he was able to dance around not providing details so i don't know exactly how they do it. i just -- i have a kind of hunch that, you know, they'll find something that paul ryan can say that will, you know, that will get around the criticism that biden's going to come in with. >> on the lowering expectations front, the president came out said and he thinks joe biden is going to be terrific. surprisingly, they'r
. >> in this this campaign i've laid out a plan for jobs and middle class security. unlike mitt romney i'm actually proud to talk about what's in it. by the way, the math in my plan adds up. folks who are still not convinced can look right here and find out what it is i intend to do in a second term. >> i want to get my hands on that magic book. from there it's off to ohio for another rally in 45 minutes. we're there and have the president hopefully before the show is over. as for mitt romney, in about 15 minutes he and paul ryan will begin kicking off their sprint in nevada, and we'll have coverage live with the governor speaks. back to the debate last night. an orc snap poll put the president winning the debate 48% to 40%. when you ask about able to be commander in chief come out about even. this comes from friend of show matt miller in the "washington post." mat writes, i don't get it. maybe it's me. for all the momentum romney's shown in recent weeks, i thought he still needed to shake thinging up in order to win. this was the last chance he had. he obviously didn't think he needed to. matt joins us
about how? a do-or-die for mitt romney n a lot of ways it really is. there are basically three possible outcomes, the way i see it tonight. someone that romney really does get some kind of a lift out of this it's a command performance, maybe some kind of slipup by obama. you think of john kerry in the first debate in 2004. maybe romney is able to revive his campaign tonight. the second possibility is, you know, something goes wrong for romney, he actually loses this debate. obviously that would be terrible for him now the third possibility, to be honest, probably the most likely one is nothing happens it is pace basically a draw, maybe 90 minutes of dull and boring television if that happens, the status quo in this vase affirmed. the status quo in this race has been a steady, stub burn three or four-point lead for barack obama and at that point, romney would be running out of big-moment opportunities to turn this thing around. that's what i'm looking for. here with us now in denver, we have howard fineman, the "huffington post" media group. said he is the buffalo bob of our show. >> now
, president obama "no drama" obama and in the other governor williard mitt tens romney. both are keeps expectations low but both step into the ring with plenty of debate experience in the past five years. can either deliver a knockout punch without going below the bench? do we search body punches over job plans? will romney be over the ropes for taxes, bill obama be bum rushed for specifics. will jim lair send them to certain corners. after some debate of our own, we compiled our own list of what to watch. wasn't easy. here's a glimpse into the editorial brainstorm. >> the president has a double-edged sword being the president, because he's got a lot of command of detail, he understands policies, but the expectations are also high and he can come across as a little too arrogant. >> i vote for hates romney as a weakness for obama. to the strength of the president, he knows everything and he's been there and done that for three and a half years, so you can't stump them. >> toure says the president knows everything. romney's clear weakness is awkward and gaffe-prone. >> when he strays off
>>> i'm coming to you live from lynn university in boca raton, florida. the city where mitt romney told the world where he thinks of the 47% and home of the third and final presidential debate of the 2012 election. walking around here a little bit, i've seen there's an incredible amount of passion for the press as these people are excited the debate is in their home. tonight could be the turning point in this election. we're going to wait to see am we've said it before about the conventions. the first debate, again for the second debate. tonight could be the thing that decide this is close race with just two weeks to go. our poll shows 47% to 47%. the real clear politics poll of poll shows it extreme close, and a look at the electoral college projection shows it is razor-thin. with this debate as the last big scheduled event before november 6th, to quote vp joe biden, this is a big f-ing deal. let's start with luke russert. now that his baseball team is waiting until next year, we'll concentrate on this election. >> cheap shot. >> my baseball team is on break, too. we're in the sam

-- the first debate is wednesday night in denver. mitt romney in the mile high city tonight for a predebate rally. surrogate chris christie set expectations mile high claiming wednesday night is yet another restart of the romney campaign. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens and i think that's when you're going it see this race really start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning the narrative of this race is going to change. >> romney has been preparing with senator rob portman who filled in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate

the winner win? can a good debate performance erase months of a campaign? about three hours ago mitt romney took a foreign policy swipe in what will be billed as a big speech. >> the president has failed to offer the tangible support that our partners want and need. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. the greater tragedy of it all is we're missing a historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east, friends fighting for their own futures against the same violent extremists and evil tyrants and angry mobs that seek to harm up. >> right now the president is speaking at the national headquarters of the united farm workers union in california. does any of this really matter? do the polls matter? do ads, nearly a billion dollars worth matter? do all the campaign appearances tell the tale? we asked that with our team plus a friend of the show dr. john nan allen from politico. >> prish the intro. >> we have 29 days to go, and we know almost nobody decides based on

. today the shoe is on the other food for obama/biden and romney/ryan. last week it was the president's team facing high expectations. this week it is paul ryan who is expected to perform well. last week the stakes were monumental for the romney team who desperately needed a strong performance to overcome weeks of mistakes, bad polls and republican hand wringing. this week it is team obama facing high stakes to stop the bleeding and quiet the lamenting of freaked out democrats who were disappointed with last week's apathetic performance. the stylistic shoe may be on the other foot as well. ryan like obama can come across as cerebral and distant. one last thing, while the pressure is on for biden, a lot is at stake for ryan too. while he is well known by inside the belt way crowd, the national audience is just getting to know ryan. his unnecessary bending of the truth sullied his reputation. this is take two for ryan to make a favorable impression and to preserve his own future regardless of whether the romney ryan ticket. this is happening in kentucky, a state known for derby, bourbon

for president obama and tipping point states like ohio. for the first time ever, though, mitt romney leads the rcp's electoral map 206-201, but you need 270 to get aboard air force one. the toss-uppers are 131 votes. by now we can name the battle grounlds in a drunken stupor, we'll focus on ohio, wisconsin, new hampshire, iowa and nevada. there are 44 electoral votes up for grabs and it may rest on the strength of obama's firewall. it's 281 obama, 257 romney. if romney wins two of the sfooifts i mentioned, romney will win. i don't want to get drunk on hypotheticals, because let's be honest, that's more of a kornacki thing. steve, tell them what's the deal. >> i think there's a lot of different ways to look at athe electoral map, but the way i narrow is down is this. there's four obama states starting to lean towards romney. he really needs them and let's say he gets them. that's north carolina, florida, colorado and virginia. that puts him at 257. at that point to win the election there are two paths for mitt romney, and these are the fooift states to pay attention to. the first path is to

in wisconsin. it's 49/48 obama. in virginia the nbc maris poll has romney up by one. in the first two big swingers, first ohio, and the president is up by 3 and in florida they show romney ahead by 1. so to help us sort it out we have chris mooney. chris, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> you've been on the ground in specifically ohio and florida. the big news out of ohio is they have the boss and big dog, bill clinton and bruce springsteen, stumping for the president. do they have aan impact in swing sets? >> they get attention, and they bring people out. that's not to say mitt romney and obama can't bring people. in the month of october they're pulling more than 10,000 people into rallies. the key take away here is the era of the national campaign is over. you have to think of it as a big pinball machine rigged with magnets to key states. these candidates don't focus on other states anymore. we look at a handful to spend a lot of time. >> that really new in the modern era? has that changed over time? >> it has. there was a great piece in national journal today that talk
of obama's firewall. it's 281 obama, 257 romney. if romney wins two of the sfooifts i mentioned, romney will win. i don't want to get drunk on hypotheticals, because let's be honest, that's more of a kornacki thing. steve, tell them what's the deal. >> i think there's a lot of different ways to look at athe electoral map, but the way i narrow is down is this. there's four obama states starting to lean towards romney. he really needs them and let's say he gets them. that's north carolina, florida, colorado and virginia. that puts him at 257. at that point to win the election there are two paths for mitt romney, and these are the fooift states to pay attention to. the first path is to win the state of ohio. he's your next president, but he's not doing that well in ohio. let's say he loses ohio. here's the next path. wisconsin may be more winnable at this point for the romney campaign than ohio is. we went over the reasons yesterday. if you win wisconsin all you need from romney is one of three states, new hampshire, iowa, or nevada. when wisconsin plus one of those, you're also over 270.
focus on ohio while the clock strikes midnight. >> i'm toure. romney mnsz's resurgence is disappointing news for republicans. thaerts, i said republicans. >> i'm krystal ball. the highest court takes on higher learning. this could shake up college admissions all across the country. >> first he ruffled big bird's feathers and now mitt romney is leaving sponge bob out to dry. who is next, little mermaid? >> a little fantasy football ahead of the biden/ryan smackdown. it's all in "the cycle" for this tuesday, october 9th. >>> exactly one month from today, all the ads, debates and campaign stops will finally be over, but until then we're stuck politics mode. it's the last day of voter registration in ohio. mitt romney is heading there tonight to start an intense five-day push in the state after spending the morn in iowa. combined, iowa and ohio have 24 electoral votes up for grabs. obama won both states in 2008 and has a stlim three-point lead in these two battlegrounds. speaking of battlegrounds, word today the romney camp is moving resources out of pennsylvania and into ohio hoping to tar
,000 per month. faster momentum on the payroll growth side as well. >> peter, romney's talking point for months now is the unemployment rate is above 8% every month since obama took office. with that out the window, his new talking point is 114,000 new jobs created and labor participation. >> fewer new jobs created this month and last month. the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very veshgs slowly. the reason it came down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more have just stopped looking for work. if you just drop out of the work force, if you give up and say, i can't go back to work. i'm going to stay home. if you drop out altogether, you're no longer part of the employment statistics. so it looks like employment is better, but if the same share of people were participating in the work force today is as on the day the president got elected the unemployment rate would be around 11%. >> peter, when romney was governor of massachusetts, the unemployment rate went down because a lot of people left the state. is he fair to make this point now? >> i t
the romney/ryan ticket for making this an issue. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarkey. when there's a crisis we pull together as a nation. even before we knew what happened to the ambassador the governor was holding a press conference, holding a press conference. that's not presidential leadership. >> the debate moved from foreign policy to the 47%. >> it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lies. my friend recently in a speech in washington said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors, they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> governor romney is a good man. he cares about 100% of americans in this country. with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> and of course the two sparred over entitlements. >> look, these guys haven't been big on medicare from the
white mitt romney doesn't have anything to do in this moment. how do you read what you see from the two campaigns right now? >> the romney campaign is going back to full-time campaign mode. i think they were in a battleground state today with governor romney but didn't hold a campaign event per se with the relief event that they hold. again, being in ohio obviously has a campaign aspect to it. he's resuming campaigning tomorrow and has a full schedule in florida tomorrow. president plans to tour the disaster areas in new jersey with governor christie tomorrow afternoon, and then i think with that -- there had been some question it was my understanding they were working on this planning. the question was whether new jersey would be ready to receive the security entourage that comes with the president tomorrow or wait until nurse? the fact they're doing it tomorrow indicates the presid t president's campaign schedule is likely to resume thursday. >> anyone that predicted romney would campaign is right. >> more on that later, toure. lower manhattan saw a record storm system last night. a
'll pretend i won't be there. president obama and romney hnz are in the last hours of debate prep before they meet tomorrow for the second presidential debate. it should be a monumental evening in this debate. hofstra university in long island, new york is hosting "the cycle's" only town hall style debate with undecided voters asking the question which may or may not be augmented by candy crowley. this is the most direct since george h.w. bush, bill clinton and ross perot started the tradition 20 years ago. this time obama needs to find his mojo and not seem like he doesn't want to be there. campaign aides vow this time you'll see a more fiery obama. for romney it's his chance to he break a six-year stereotype he's too rich and out of touch to relate to the voter. even aas he dominated the first debate he lagged 29 points behind obama when voters asked if he connects well with ordinary americans. let's bring in our guess dana "captain crunch" millbank. interesting tough from nate today. national numbers go one way and state numbers another way. he said if you're not nervous or thrown off
